SOURCE: Dryer blows cold air but no heat
The heating element is in the back of the dryer. Sometimes there is a small access panel that will allow you to check the terminals to the heating element. You will need an ohm meter or multimeter to check.

Gas valve coils
Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.
I hope this helps....

It may be the thermal fuse but it could also be the heating element. The way to check is to open it up as described above and run the dryer. Watch the element and if it turns on then off again immediately then it is your thermal fuse. That is only about 15 dollars to fix and you can get a new fuse at any appliance repair shop. If the element doesn't ever come on then the element is burnt out and needs to be replaced. This is a little more expensive. I hope this was helpful and if you have any more questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.

Make sure that both poles of your circuit are live - An electric dryer uses 220 volts to the heating element, but taps into only one pole (110 volt) for the motor that spins the drum. Check your circuit breaker to make sure that neither pole has tripped.

check your heating element or the thermal fuses located on the back wall the side of the heating element can and the plastic blower ducting
